Bio

A writer by day and a reader by night, Lea is the co-creator of three children, and works part-time as a pharmacist in Australia to have a break from the housework.

Life literally changed forever when, in 2011, her paramedic husband was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Always straight from the heart, Lea writes powerfully emotive and honest accounts of motherhood, family, and a wife living under the dark shadow of PTSD.

Follow her inspirational journey through this blog and Facebook page. You may also find her guest posting on online platforms, such as The Huffington Post, Mamamia, and The Mighty.

I began writing this blog purely to express my own experiences living with and supporting a husband who battles complex PTSD. I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and that you may find comfort in knowing you are not travelling this road alone.

Please be aware that I am in no way qualified to assist or counsel people with PTSD, secondary PTSD, or any other mental illness. If you are in a crisis situation, please contact your local authorities or hotline.

Although I may, at times, write about what my husband has personally found beneficial along his road to recovery, I will not endorse, nor be an advocate for, any particular PTSD treatments or therapies.

Please be aware that the content of my posts may be upsetting to some people, and there may be potential triggers for those who suffer from PTSD.

I greatly appreciate receiving your comments. Please be aware that comments which others may find offensive or are in any way abusive will be deleted and the user blocked.

Thank you
